The Petoskey Film Series and the Petoskey District Library will be showing the film "The Peanut Butter Falcon" on Friday, November 15, 7:30 pm at the Petoskey District Library, Carnegie Building (451 E. Mitchell St., next to the Arts Center).  Donations are appreciated.
A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, "The Peanut Butter Falcon" tells the story of Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak's unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak's return, to join them on their journey.  A feelgood adventure brought to life by outstanding performances, The Peanut Butter Falcon finds rich modern resonance in classic American fiction.
